Earthwise Dishwasher Tablets are naturally powerful - and so easy to use. Designed for use in automatic dishwashers, each sachet contains a concentrated 20g dose in a dissolvable wrapper. Simply place the tablet - no need to unwrap! - in your dishwasher's dispenser for squeaky clean and streak-free dishes.
I have been using Earthwise dishwasher tablets for quite a while now but was getting a bit over having the wrapper left all sticky in my cutlery drawer so I was pleased to have a chance to review the new formulation.
I much prefer it I must say. Having used the new tablets for two weeks now pretty much at least one dishwash cycle a day none of the new tablets have remained when the cycle has finished. I feel confident now that I don't need to rinse anything off and everything that goes in the dishwasher is coming out beautifully clean and shiny.
The box is pretty much the same as the old type which is good as I really like the size and style of the box as it fits into our pantry well. Almost every tablet in my box however is attached to at least one partner which means that its not just a matter of grabbing a tablet out of the box and throwing it in the cutlery tray of my dishwasher. I have to pick up up one and then try to separate it from a partner often when my hands are wet which makes it go a bit sticky. Hopefully this is just a teething issue and they will in future batches be separated like the old tablets. That is my only complaint with these and aside from that I think these tablets clean better and the wrapper dissolves much more completely than the tablets I had previously been using.
I will definitely buy again and if you haven't tried Earthwise before I would certainly recommend giving these a go. If you look out for specials these are great value for money.
I have been using these dish tablets at least once a day for the past two weeks. I was a little sceptical of how effective these would be, as our dishwasher gets used for all our dishes (which includes some that are very dirty!) I was really surprised that these were the best tablets I have ever used!
When I received these I read the box and was interested to see that it recommends to do an empty wash first, with an Earthwise tablet so that it removes other products chemical residue that may be in your washer. I followed these instructions, but didn't see any visible residue that was on the dishwasher before, but it does make sense.
I have one son who loves weetbix for breakfast and sometimes I don't get the chance to rinse his bowl and it can sit in the kitchen until I get back home during the day to load the dishwasher. Usually the weetbix are caked on and I have to give the bowl a scrub after its been through the washer. I was absolutely blown away that every single time I have put these bowls in whilst using the Earthwise tablets, the bowls have come out sparkling!
Another night we had a roast and I put the roasting dish into the washer, not expecting it to come out 100% clean, but was keen to test the cleaning power of these tablets. I again was so impressed as it came out fantastically clean. What an easy clean up after cooking the roast!
The only thing that I wasn't that impressed with was that the dissolvable wrappers stick together, or haven't been cut properly and its a bit fidgety when you are trying to be speedy at cleaning up and getting the dishwasher going.
Overall I am really impressed with these tablets and even though they are a bit more expensive that others I use, taking into account the environmental aspect of the product I will be purchasing more when we run out.
I really love earthwise products and have tried the dishwasher gel from earthwise as much as I liked it I am loving the tablets a lot better and to be honest I was NEVER a fan of using my dishwasher I would prefer to wash by hand, but it seems things just weren't getting done and everything would stack up. So time to give these tablets a go.
So I stacked up the dishwasher made sure it was stocked with its finish aid stuff and popped a tablet in. Turned it on and let it do its thing, the dishes came out clean, the glasses felt clean and the milk was off them. the spoons were looking great, I always have problems with my spoons. With a daughter that can't eat gluten and the only way to clean it off is water, this is great the tablets are good for the environment and safe for my daughter well the whole family really.
What I like is it is a 30 pack box will last me a month, one tablet a day pretty much unless its a party or something then maybe 2 a day. Another thing that has got me is the kids can put this in the machine without me having to worry they are going to lick their fingers afterwards cause you can put it in wrapper and all. This doesn't leave anything in the machine, doesn't make a mess and leaves your dishes clean still.
I would recommend these to friends and family that use dishwashers and want something that is safe for the environment and themselves, cause I know we aren't eating off something that isnt safe
I have tried many different types of dishwasher tablet formulations before, and they were all of the leave the wrapper on type, and each one never really dissolved properly, however this formulation is completely different in terms of the wrapper and it dissolved every time without any problems.
Other issues we have had with the more cheaper brands, was either the tablet never fully dissolved and left a clumpy mess behind , or sometimes if we had forgotten to rinse the dishes there was still food left on the dishes even after a full heavy wash, well with this product I only had tablet residue once and every time the dishes were nicely cleaned and no sign of any left over food on the dishes, even if we hadn't fully rinsed the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.
Another great thing about these tablets is that they seem to keep that dishwasher needs a clean cycle smell down and it even leaves a hint of a citrus smell behind, although I wouldn't suggest that this be used in place of a dishwasher cleaning product as they are just as necessary in keeping a good clean dishwasher.
I haven't used many Earthwise products in the past but after seeing how good this product is, well I might just be changing my mind on that decision.
I have to hand it to Earthwise these tablets are magic! I was pleasantly surprised by how tough they are on dirt and grime. Mine were given the hardest tests over the first few days I used them, I cleaned my oven out and put the racks through the dishwasher, and I managed to burn milk onto a dish making a potato bake, and it all came clean.
Never have I had any product manage to clean this off without a little assistance. My daughter then had a birthday party and we had the dishwasher stacked to capacity and going nonstop all evening and still I had spotlessly clean dishes, spotless cutlery and shiny glasses. My dishwasher smelt fresh, and it looked a little cleaner on the inside too.
The Earthwise dishwasher tablets come in little dissolvable bags, which means they are effortless to use, and you never have some residual lumps of dishwasher cleaner in the dispenser because you added too much. One box would last our family a month, so it makes them a very cost effective product.
On a moral note it felt great to be using a product that is good for the environment, and works so well! I was so excited by these that I gave some earth wise dishwasher tablets to my friends to try. I would definitely recommend these to all people who love clean dishes, and like to use something that is gentle on the environment, and is a great price! The Earthwise range of products are renowned for providing quality products, that deliver on their promises and are gentle on the earth, and they usually smell fantastic too, a must in every family home!
We are big converts to Earthwise and their products in this house. I already had a box of their lemon and lime dishwasher tablets in my cupboard which was nearly out. So it was fantastic timing getting a review box of these new formulation lemon tablets. The box they come in is similar, but a bit more glossy. It still had that familiar look and feel of an Earthwise product though.
The tablets are in a dissolvable wrapper. I love these. Often the wrappers a tablet come in are too hard to open for me. I don't have a strong grip and all my finger nails are shockingly weak as well. Yay for not having to open this tablet before it goes in! It reduces the waste going in the bin too.
The tablet itself is a standard size. I popped one into my dishwasher and let the magic happen. The next morning, when I got up the dishes were absolutely squeaky clean and streak free as promised. There was the faintest hint of lemon as I opened the door.
I've ben using this tablets for the week, and I'm very happy with the results. Ultimately, what I look for in a product like this, is that it just works. Earthwise does that and what's more - it does that while being better for the environment too. Great work Earthwise!
